The TAEFL family is very multicultural, therefore this year we decided to celebrate Easter differently.  As the saying goes .. “Good things come to those who wait!” – we celebrated it a week later, but we had a fabulous time!

Everyone brought a traditional dish – What a feast! We had traditional Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian and English fare. To top it up, we followed the European Easter eggs tradition – We all know that Europeans take their Easter egg traditions seriously!

The ancient art of egg decorating still thrives in many European countries as a symbolic part of Easter. For Christians, the Easter egg is symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Painting Easter eggs is an especially beloved tradition in the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches where the eggs are dyed red to represent the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross.

According to the European tradition, on Easter day everyone joins in the “egg tapping” where every participant chooses a painted egg and hits another participant’s painted egg until only one egg remains intact. The winner is believed to be happy and healthy all year long.

And the winner was …. Philip Hyde !! 😊
